In a continuing update of my original post HERE there are some new developments!
In the last post, we discussed the McCain advert that compared Obama’s celebrity to that of the vapid Spears and Hilton.
Apparently, the Hilton family was not extremely pleased with the intimation that Paris was trite and without substance, especially since they had donated heavily to McCain’s campaign.
In response, Paris made this hilarious video:
Not bad, right?
But it gets better! The response the McCain campaign had is funny as hell…
In response, the McCain camp steers clear of Paris and slams Obama… in full snark.
In the unkindest cut of all, McCain’s spokesperson Tucker Bounds tells TMZ that on the subject of energy, Paris is deeper than Barack. He says, “Sounds like Paris is taking the ‘All of the Above’ energy approach that John McCain has advocated — both alternatives and drilling. Perhaps the reality is that Paris has a more substantive energy plan than Barack Obama.”
Seriously… I think McCain did hire the SNL writers!
Regardless, no matter what your politics, no matter what your opinion of McCain… these ads are political genius.
Whoever is running this strategy should be worshiped and studied.
